    Anyone not voting UK has no idea that 90% of an iceberg is underwater. UK breweries have a beer to match any foreign contender from any quarter. Britain is the best place in the world to drink it, too.

    As much as we like the idea of a cool one on a tropical beach, or something fruity on your European veranda - it's only a fleeting, ephemeral enjoyment of a world we cannot know. In our hearts we all yearn to be in that tavern in the Shire, enjoying the local brew of the week or month, taking in the oak beams, the hard-earned sunshine and the sounds of the countryside in our ears. That's what makes Britain great: its beer, and its pubs :-)

    English pubs are unequivocally shit. The beer may be nice but the carpets reek of piss and the pubs themselves are devoid of character.

    I'm curious, the original comment you quote goes on about UK, but then you say specifically English pubs are shit. You wouldn't be Scots, Welsh or Irish would you? Not that I have a point. I never have a point really.

    Also if the carpets reek of piss, stop pissing maybe?

    England (ale) and Germany or Belgium (lager).

    I'd have to agree with JuanKerr.
    UK ale is deffo the best imo. I know Belgian beer is highly rated by some, but it tends to have a certain taste that I just can't stand. Went to a beer fest in the Grand Place in Brussels a couple of years ago and had to stick to lager or fruit beer as I could finish a lot of the other stuff.

    Not as nice as I used to be

    Try going into ones that do have character maybe?

    - and to the thread

    British beer is the best but I had some really nice beers in Cleveland (Ohio) when a local took me to some bars that only stocked micro brewery beer. Changed my mind about the state of beer over there.

    No bitters but plenty of choice with dark and light German style beers.

    TH, you must be joking.

    I think Asahi is my favourite lager.

    For shit pubs that may be true. But there are great pubs out there worth seeking out.
    It's quite London-centric but Fancyapint.com rates pubs 1-5 and any pub with a 5 pint rating is worth a visit.

    Fair enough, leaves more decent beer for the rest of us.

    Fair enough, but you are missing out on a whole world of quality beer.

    Besides, Fosters is brewed in the UK isn't it?

    Agreed. Mix in some Strongbow and a splash of blackcurrant cordial and you're in heaven.

    What are these top Belgian lagers? I'm only aware of a small family concern over in Leuven who make a couple of beers ;)

    On the other hand, many of their ales are unique and very tasty, and probably cover a greater range than any other country.

    I'd say Belgium and the UK have many unique brews each. Everywhere else produces too much pale lager to be famous for their beer.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    there are lovely beers all over the island but the standard shitty lager slapped down in your average city centre bar is minging. One nice thing about Germany, beers are almost universally poured with care and in nice glasses.

    That's very true. I tend to avoid 'bars' and stick to good old boozers. Decent ale is definitely becoming more popular in the UK - small breweries popping up all the time.

    Anyone from Manchester remember the LOG42 from the Las O'Gowrie? Jesus that was some potent stuff, bloody nice as well. Also the Flea & Firkin was a regular haunt during my student days, Dog Bolter I think it was called was rather quaffable.

    Ahhh.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    I've just recently started seeing large ads for Windhoek on my local highstreet. My favourite beer back in SA by far.

    Just a pity it's so expensive over here. I am glad though that you can even get it, I remember when I first came to the UK you could occasionally find Castle and that was it, now it's easy to find Hunters, Savanah, Windhoek etc.

    Goes down well. They never have it anywhere though.
